While there are lots of music streaming services around, Spotify is slowly but surely becoming the most popular web subscription-based music streaming service worldwide. Featured with a catalog of 30+ million songs, several social features and clever new tools, Spotify offers users unlimited access and stream to an extremely wide variety of audio tracks, artists, genres, albums and playlists. There are mainly two tiers provided by Spotify for individuals: a free tier, a $9.99-a-month Premium tier. The Free tier is ad supported. Features like song selection, skipping tracks, and saving music for offline listening are limited or blocked compared to the paid tiers. The Premium tier is Spotify's flagship product.
